A clueless singer, a space cowboy and a psychic mom

The judges on Sunday’s “American Idol” celebrated Katy Perry’s pregnancy, teasing a coming “fourth” judge and a “bigger and better” show. 

But after the introductory high-fives, singer Lou Dawg, 23, had no clue who the judges were. He  confused judge Luke Bryan with Justin Timberlake, couldn’t name a single Perry song and had no idea who Lionel Richie was.

“I’ve been in the business 242 years.” Richie said. Lou wondered if he was the host from “Wheel of Fortune.” As if he was a coach on NBC’s rival “The Voice” instead, a frustrated Richie turned around in his chair to escape Lou. 

In an original song, “Feel My Lovin,” Lou had a decent voice but sounded amateurish as if he was playing at a party instead of competing for a chance to go to Hollywood for ABC’s singing competition. Lou admitted he didn’t know if singing was a hobby or a profession. The judges sent him home to work on his craft, and hopefully remember their names next time.

Lou Dawg's audition wasn't helped by his cluelessness about the 'American Idol' judges.

Danny La Rota, a 24-year-old dental student, sang an interesting cover of Lorde’s “Royals,”  creating an offbeat tempo that transformed the song into something wholly unique. 

“I don’t know what the heck you’re doing in everybody else’s mouth,” Perry said. “You need to shut their mouths and keep your mouth open.” 

Two “Idol” superfans finally got the chance to live out their dream and win tickets to Hollywood. Devon Alexander, 22, who sang “Not in That Way” by Sam Smith, grew up with a television that only had one channel, and he’d watch “Idol” every week. Makayla Phillips, 17, used to pretend her Barbie dolls were host Ryan Seacrest and herself. She sang “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5, to much acclaim.
